If you are a regular visitor here at Drafthound, then you may be familiar with the guys over on FanTeam who run one of the world's leading daily fantasy platforms and communities.
Well, they have just announced a record-breaking £1,000,000 Fantasy Football Tournament for the upcoming European Championship (Euros 2020) - and we couldn’t be more excited!
It plays like classic FPL except for the fact that you now have the chance to turn your fantasy knowledge into cash prizes - and the best part? You don’t even have to finish first to win.
First place will take home a life-changing £200,000 but there’s also a guaranteed £800,000 prize pool for those finishing within the top 10,377.
In FPL terms that might sound like an improbable rank but that’s a game of 8 million players.
This competition is capped at 87,109 entries meaning a rank of 10,377 corresponds to a top 11,9% finish.
To put that into perspective that’s the equivalent of coming 952,000 in FPL which most consistent managers should be able to do!
As mentioned earlier, anyone with any sort of Fantasy Premier League experience should be able to pick up FanTeam’s contests without issue.
The rules, prices, and scoring systems are all very similar to FPL so skills are easily transferable.
It’s essentially a version of the FPL that allows its players a legitimate opportunity to make money from their manager expertise.
The full set of rules can be found in the graphic above or on FanTeam's site - but we’ve also highlighted the ones you should pay the most attention to here:
Now that you are familiar with the game setup le’s take a look at how your players will score you points - spoiler alert - it’s also based on the FPL.
The bulk of your points will come from goals, assists, and clean sheets - and the only additional aspects you need to be aware of are:
Don’t worry if you are still unsure about the rules or scoring as this is just the first of a number of articles that we have planned to help you to pick your squad prior to the deadline along with our usual player analysis and dream teams - all you need to do is to make sure you’re either signed up to our newsletter or follow us on either Instagram or Twitter, where we will also be doing competitions for free entries into the competition!
